Book Review: Dare

Summary: Courage could cost him everything. 
 Third Blade Leith Torren never questions his orders or his loyalty to King Respen until an arrow wound and a prairie blizzard drive him to the doorstep of the girls whose family he once destroyed.
 Their forbidden faith and ties to the Resistance could devastate their family a second time. 
 Survival depends on obedience, but freedom beckons. How far does he dare go to resist the king and his Blades?
No matter what Leith chooses, one thing is certain. 
Someone will die.

Thoughts: Wow! This story! Starting at a fast paced beginning, this book doesn't stop and hardly slows down as you're whirled through a heart stopping adventure that leaves you itching for more (the tension is killing me)! According to the summary, I assumed that most of the story took place in the girl's home, during a blizzard, and therefore expected a slower more home-focused story. Boy was I wrong! The summary barely scratches the surface of this book and, while I won't give anything away, I will say that I was pleasantly surprised and very tense reading this book. When you read enough books you get to the point where the ending itself isn't a great surprise, about half way through you already guess which familiar ever-after the book is going for, and start caring more for how everything gets to the ending rather than the ending itself (though happy endings always make a good read)! With this book I was six chapters from the ending and honestly didn't know what was going to happen, it felt like there was too much that needed to happen! But everything was well done, never crammed or unbelievable. The plot holds together well, the characters have depth and personalities, and the world itself feels believable and well structured. Also it's well written which is always a plus!

Content: Being a Christian adventure its pretty much entirely clean aside from some violence.
